Does The App Contain Viruses?

We are more efficient in flood performing, so the app could be recognized as hacking.tool. We already had people on the chat who parses the code, and they did not find anything malicious.

Antivirus Exclusions

To avoid any runtime problems until the app will be signed:

Add the application folder to your antivirus exclusions to avoid blocking task execution, as some antiviruses could detect it as a hacker tool. Adding an application to the firewall exception would also be a good idea. The app isn’t server-based, it’s a simple client, so you don’t need to be aware of the hacking of the exposed web interface and host.

Is It Safe?

The app was not made purposefully for cyberwar. Moreover, we were just at a beta testing stage when these terrible things happened. We were collecting IP to provide the possibility to cover all the globe for better network distribution and higher service delivery. IPs also helped in remoting debugging and understanding why our previous client behaves differently on different devices (which is crucial as the main goal before segmentation for resident attacks). It’s highly recommended to use VPN to run the app.

Can I Use VPN?

YES. It helps encrypt your data!

VPN services are recommended:

hVPN 🔥

Use hVPN app for free with unlimited capacity.

You can also use any VPN resources like https://1.1.1.1, etc.

You Can Also Use PROXY SERVERS Instead Of VPN!

Will Someone Be Able To Track Me Down?

If you use a VPN connection, there is no chance for someone to get your IP, including disBalancer.

Is It Legal?

We are acting in coordination with the Ministry of Digital Transformation that initiated the Ukrainian Cyber Army invention to help the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Failed to read file:open proxies.txt: The system cannot find the file specified.

This is NOT a software ERROR — just a notification in the journal!

Why Low Speed / Low Traffic?

DDoS is not about “stupidly heading 100,000 streams”, but looking for the optimal speed of generating queries that will not arouse suspicion in the attacking server.

Turbo mode will be added soon, and there will be the ability to attack using a proxy! Then everyone will be able to squeeze the most out of their machines or instance.

THEREFORE, if in your opinion your client generates not enough traffic / generates it periodically — it is OK.

Well-protected resources require a “quieter, farther approach”.

Massive Target Attacking …

Everything is fine, everything works!

Searching For The Kremlin’s Target To Defeat …

The app searches for a goal, if long — close the client, change the geolocation of VPN, start the client again.

Does It Make Sense To Run Multiple disBalancer Windows On One PC?

NO!

Does It Make Sense To Run disBalancer In One Network On Multiple PCs?

YES!

Why Can’t We Choose Targets And See Them Before Attacking?

As was mentioned before, the software is designed to use user bandwidth to perform stress testing for businesses. That’s why we do not need to show targets to users connected to the app.

To make the process transparent, we managed to inform you about starting an attack (#ATTACKSTARTED) and its finishing (#ATTACKFINISHED) in our English and Ukrainian chats. Websites links/IP will be attached.

Furthermore, we list websites that were down every day.

There are plural apps being made directly to join cyberwar where you can choose targets yourself which is bad sometimes because some users prefer to attack all Russian resources without solid research whether they are propaganda-related.

What To Do If The Error Occurs?

Be sure you have installed all required software described in minimal system requirements.

In case of any issues with the application, please write in the chat and attach the information.log file. It’s a file located near Liberator.Disbalancer.exe.

How Do We Know What Targets We Have?

We don’t disclose targets until downtime. Targets that are currently under attack are hidden due to security purposes. After a website is in downtime, we send an inactive link to the disBalancer chat.

Can I See The Core Code?

Our solution was initially designed for b2b needs, but when the Russian invaded Ukraine, the team managed to use it to fight in a cyberwar. Therefore, we have non-open-source DDoS methods. So it is quite dangerous to spread it on open access.

Сan I Install The Application On A Smartphone?

No, only the desktop versions for all the OS are currently available.

Can I Share Websites To Make Them Unusable?

Sure! Just send a link to it on our Telegram chat.

Have Other Issues With The App?

Join our English or Ukrainian chat and feel free to ask anything.
